Overview

Legendary director Kinji Fukasaku (Battle Royale, The Black Lizard) takes the helm for this stylish and violent take on the life of a lower echelon yakuza thug striving to survive in a Tokyo where the rules are constantly changing. Thuggish Isamu Okita (Bunta Sugawara) has a bad reputation for his short temper and bad habit of flying off the handle. When he returns to the streets after a harrowing stint in jail, the ever-changing climate finds him struggling to survive. When adaptation to the new way of gang life proves futile for ex-con Isamu, the misfit forms his own gang with the intention of getting revenge on those who wronged him in the past.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This intense, furiously-paced crime film outing is one of director Kinji Fukasaku's finest films. On the surface, it is an action opus and it works beautifully at that level: the script delivers a preponderance of chases, brawls and confrontations of all sizes and Fukasaku gives it a potent, kinetic energy with his trademark combination of handheld camerawork and quick-cut editing. However, Street Mobster also weaves in some social commentary under all the action that is just as potent. Fukasaku dimensionalizes his rough-and-tumble criminal protagonists by portraying the societal indifference and family problems that shape who they are. The end result is brutal and poignant by turns, a facet that is beautifully captured in the lead performances: Bunta Sugawara is a ball of fire as the film's charming yet self-destructive anti-hero, Noboru Ando is cool yet intense as the boss who tries to save Sugawara from his worst impulses and Mayumi Nagisa is unforgettable as the tragic call-girl whose destiny is inextricably bound with that of the hero. In short, Street Mobster is an excellent example of the yakuza film and a great introduction to the genre for novices.
